The LG Libero Monitor can be hung on office cubicles to free up desk space

Trends come and go, and some designs are even making a comeback. This is not only true in the fashion world, but also in other industries including interior and even office design. In the not too distant past, cubicles were demolished to make way for open floor plans. However, this more social and democratic design also came with a cost in focus and productivity, which has led to some offices bringing back those boxes that try to give you a little sanctuary in a storm of distractions. Rather than just limiting space, booths also offer opportunities for personalization and tweaking, and this new computer monitor takes that to heart in a rather novel way.

Designer: LG

Desk space is always limited, whether you’re working in a cubicle, an office floor plan, or even at home. However, it can be even more constrained when these work dividers are involved, as they impose limits in three dimensions. Because of this, some people have gotten a bit more creative using the vertical space these walls provide, but the desk space occupied by a computer monitor still takes up quite a chunk of what’s left.

The aptly named LG Libero 27MQ70QC monitor frees up that space, actually freeing up your desk for things you actually use, rather than just looking at it. You can technically buy mounting accessories for a basic computer monitor, but this LG screen comes with one already built in. Plus, it does so in a fairly innovative way, allowing you to use the monitor on your desk as usual when you run out of a wall to hang it on.

The Libero’s trick is a collapsible stand that doubles as a handle that can hang on hooks above your cabin or any wall. With this stand, you can even tilt the monitor forward or backward according to your preference and comfort. This duality is what the design of the Libero is all about. For example, the included webcam is detachable and has dedicated ports at the top and bottom, so it’s always on the “top” of the monitor, regardless of orientation.

The 27-inch LG Libero isn’t all about that gimmick though, and it has the qualities of a quality monitor you’ve come to expect from the brand. However, the original $500 price tag might feel a bit high given that MacGyver lets you buy your own hanging monitor solution for so much less. However, you reap the benefits of a product designed for use in such configurations rather than having to struggle to get things working yourself.
